Information Technology

New and efficient electronic technologies are evolving from science fiction to reality through nanoscience. CNSI scientists and engineers utilize semiconductor materials such as metal oxides, perovskite, and graphene to break the mold in the creation of small, fast, and flexible electronics. These materials will enable progressive information technologies such as quantum computers. Carbon-based and carbon-metal hybrid semiconductors being developed in CNSI core technology centers show promise to vastly improve the performance of data storage circuits, batteries, and electronics in personal devices.

Ever-increasing global demand for faster and more durable information exchange has created a race to develop and commercialize the next generation of information technology platforms. CNSI maintains an international leadership role in the development of exciting new technologies to meet future demand.
